Well, here is my situation.......
I'm 38, going on 39 and I am thinking of starting a detailing business. Now, this isn't a spur of the moment idea that just popped into my head. In fact, while going to school way back when, I actually worked as a detailer for an auto collision company. While I am not what I would consider an "auto nut", I have always appreciated nice vehicles, that look good. Not being real happy with my Project Management position and having always wanted to be self-employed, I am seriously starting to plan and look at how to make this a reality. I also have visions of expanding the detailing to other areas which I have experience in as well.
All of that said, my main concern is location. Living in the Midwest, I figure that the viable "season" for the business would be about 8 months. I am expecting the winter months to be non-existant for business. There are some options that I am thinking about for these months, however this would be down the road.
So, I ask, for those who are in the business of detailing and who also live in the Midwest or a similar climate, are there ways that you generate business during the winter? I am not asking for how you may get business, just wondering if you actually do get business. That is all.
I look forward to your comments and I thank you in advance!
